Mr. ROBINSON of Indiana. I am sorry for that, as there are 
some matters on which it ought to take effect early.
Mr. KNOX. We have provided that some provisions take effect at 
once.
Mr. ROBINSON of Indiana. Does that include section 10 - the 
labor provision?
Mr. KNOX.   No; it does not.
The CHAIRMAN. The question is on the amendment offered by 
the gentleman from Massachusetts, in the nature of a substitute.
The question was taken; and the substitute was agreed to.
Mr. KNOX. I move that the committee now rise and report 
the bill and amendment to the House.
The motion was agreed to.
The committee accordingly rose; and the Speaker having re-
sumed the chair, Mr. MOODY of Massachusetts. Chairman or the 
Committee of the Whole House on the state of the Union, reported 
that that committee had had under consideration the bill S. 222, 
and had directed him to report the same with an amendment in 
the nature of a substitute, with the recommendation that the bill as 
thus amended do pass.
The SPEAKER. The question is on agreeing to the amend-
ment.
The question was taken; and the amendment was agreed to.
The SPEAKER. The question now is on the third reading of the 
bill.
The bill was ordered to a third reading; and it was accordingly 
read the third time.
Mr. BARTHOLDT. Mr. Speaker, since the parliamentary 
status of the bill is such that no amendment can be voted upon 
separately, and the only opportunity to offer an amendment is by a 
motion to recommit to the Committee on Territories, I desire to 
offer such a motion.
The SPEAKER. The gentleman from Missouri submits a motion 
to recommit, which the Clerk will report.
The Clerk .read as follows:
That the bill be recommitted to the Committee on Territories with in-
structions to strike out of page 71, line 7, alter the word "allowed," the 
words "nor shall saloons for the sale of intoxicating liquors be allowed," and 
that the bill be reported back forthwith.
Mr. CANNON. Mr. Speaker, I desire to make a parliamentary 
inquiry. Suppose that motion is adopted. I desire to know whether it 
would be the duty of the gentleman in charge of the bill at once on 
its adoption to report back the bill as instructed.
The SPEAKER. The Chair will state, in reply to the parlia-
mentary inquiry of the gentleman from Illinois, that it has been 
held repeatedly that the chairman of the committee who reports 
the bill, if this motion should prevail, should report it back forth-
with, without leaving his seat or consulting his committee; and 
the Chair will further state that in the recollection of the Chair, on 
a motion made by the gentleman from Illinois who makes the 
parliamentary inquiry, that ruling was made. The question is on 
agreeing to the motion.
Mr. LITTLEFIELD. I call for the yeas and nays. [Cries of "Oh, no!"]
Mr. FINLEY.   Mr. Speaker --
The SPEAKER.   For what purpose does the gentleman rise?
Mr. FINLEY. For a parliamentary inquiry. I wish to know 
whether or not unanimous consent is necessary on that motion?
The SPEAKER.  On this motion; not at all. It is a privilege the 
gentleman has. The question is on agreeing to the motion.
The question was taken; and the Speaker announced that the 
ayes seemed to have it.
Several MEMBERS.   Division!
The House divided: and there were - ayes 50, noes 83.
Mr. PARKER of New Jersey and Mr. BARTHOLDT. The yeas 
and nays.
The question was taken on ordering the yeas and nays.
The SPEAKER. Eighteen gentlemen have arisen - not a suffi-
cient number; the yeas and nays are refused. The noes have it, 
and the motion is lost. The question is on the passage of the bill.
The question was taken; and the Speaker announced that the 
ayes appeared to have it.
Mr. KLEBERG and others.   Division!
The House divided: and there were - ayes 120, noes 28.
Mr. KLEBERG.   The yeas and nays, Mr. Speaker.
The question was taken on ordering the yeas and nays.
